The Buccaneers http://www.buccaneerslockerroo…..aro-jersey
, to the surprise of many, are 2-0 to start the season after picking up wins against the Saints and Eagles. They return to the field on Monday night for a primetime matchup against the Steelers. Here’s where things stand in the franchise record book heading into week three:Career Receiving YardsMike Evans is inching closer and closer to being No. 2 in receiving yards. With 83 yards against the Eagles on Sunday, he now has 4,809 yards. He needs 120 more to pass Kevin House (4,928) for that second spot.Career Receiving TouchdownsWith his touchdown against Philadelphia, Evans is now tied with Jimmie Giles for most receiving scores all-time (34). If he finds the end zone against Pittsburgh on Monday, he will own the franchise record very early in his fifth season. Career ReceptionsWith 10 catches on Sunday, Evans passed Mark Carrier for second all-time. He now sits at 326, which is 104 behind James Wilder (430) for the top spot. Rushing TouchdownsThe Bucs are still without a rushing touchdown this season, so Peyton Barber and Jacquizz Rodgers haven’t moved up at all. Barber is still tied for 25th in franchise history with four rushing scores, while Rodgers is close behind at 29th (three). With two on Monday, Barber would pull into a tie for 16th. Career TacklesWith six tackles last week, Lavonte David now has 559 in his career. He is slowly working his way toward third on that list, a spot currently held by Hardy Nickerson (680). For David Womens Mike Evans Jersey
, it’s all about the week-to-week progress in this category. Kwon Alexander’s six tackles against Philly moved him from 18th to 16th. He currently has 248, which means he needs six more to pass Martin Mayhew (253) for 15th.With his two tackles on Sunday, Gerald McCoy pulled into a tie for 24th with Brad Culpepper (204). He needs three more to pass Simeon Rice for 23rd.Career SacksMcCoy picked up his first sack of the season on Sunday, which brought his career total up to 49 1/2. He is now 20 behind Simeon Rice for the franchise’s second spot.Career SafetiesLavonte David is in a first-place tie for career safeties with one.Career InterceptionsDavid is tied for 17th in career interceptions with 10. One more pulls him into a 15th-place tie with Jermaine Phillips and Jeremiah Castille, while two more brings him up to a 12th-place tie with Dwight Smith, Jeris White and Mark Robinson.Career Passes DefendedWith one pass breakup last week, David tied Brent Grimes for fifth in franchise history with 35. Both guys are 18 away from passing Aqib Talib for fourth. With Grimes on his way back from injury, he could be getting some separation from David.Career Fumble RecoveriesIn past versions of the record book watch, it was said that David needed one fumble recovery to tie for fifth all-time. While that is somewhat correct, it was still an oversight. That listing included players on both offense and defense, meaning the top four spots were occupied by three quarterbacks and a running back. Admittedly, that makes no sense.So… As far as defensive players are concerned, David is now tied with Ronde Barber for most fumble recoveries (12) after falling on the ball at the end of Sunday’s win against the Eagles. He needs one more to hold the franchise record.Career Forced FumblesDavid is two forced fumbles away from a second-place tie with Simeon Rice.Career Games PlayedMonday will be McCoy’s 112th career game with the Bucs, which ties him with Donald Penn for 22nd. Demar Dotson is about to play his 103rd game with Tampa Bay Ronald Jones II Jersey
, which will get him one game away from tying Hardy Nickerson (104) for 31st.David is set for his 94th game, which ties him for 46th with Kevin House. Draft season is in full swing these days, with new mocks being released or updated nearly every day. It’s always an exciting time, though it tends to drag once the draft finally gets closer. The fun part, of course, is that it seems like every mock has a different selection in the early stages of the offseason.That brings us to Walter Football’s mock, which was updated Thursday. With the No. 5 overall pick, that mock has the Buccaneers selecting offensive tackle Jawaan Taylor out of the University of Florida. Here’s the explanation:Disregarding the dig at Vita Vea, this pick seems realistic for Tampa Bay, as it would address a big-time area of need. Some mocks have the Bucs going with Alabama tackle Jonah Williams at No. 5, but Taylor is someone to keep an eye on. His blend of size and mobility is surely intriguing for a team that has struggled to field a competent offensive line for a number of years now.Exactly where the former Gator would play seems to be debatable. Walter Football mentions him as an upgrade at left tackle, which would mean the end of Donovan Smith’s time in Tampa (unless he moves to the right side, though that seems unlikely). Luke Easterling of The Draft Wire says Taylor could be an instant starter at right tackle, but could transition to left tackle if he needs to. The guys over at The Draft Network seem split on the issue. Joe Marino thinks Taylor is “extremely comfortable” on the right side and wouldn’t “mess with it Vita Vea Jersey White
,” though he goes on to say the big man could play left tackle and “would probably be fine at guard.” Kyle Crabbs notes Taylor’s positional diversity, but Jon Ledyard says he might project better as a guard because he “doesn’t have the explosiveness or range to stop pure speed.”To me, the fact that there are differing opinions on where Taylor would fill in just serves as a testament to his versatility. The Bucs could use a guy like that, especially considering the only guys that appear to be locked into their spots on the line right now are Ryan Jensen (center) and Ali Marpet (left guard). Though I haven’t extensively looked at Taylor, I’d say he could be a strong option for Tampa Bay.On a different note, I’d say the possibility of trading down is something that can definitely be talked about, especially with how this mock played out. Considering the first four teams picked non-quarterbacks, the Bucs might be sitting in a spot to move down and grab some extra picks if a quarterback-needy team wants to jump up in front of the Giants (who have the No. 6 pick). General manager Jason Licht has shown a tendency to make that exact move, so it’s definitely something to look out for.I know it’s only the first weekend in February, but what are you feeling right now, Bucs fans? Are you taking Jonah Williams or Jawaan Taylor? Someone else? Trading down? Sound off and let us know which way you’d go if you were Licht.
